about

This volumes examines commodity consumption both as an ongoing problem for capital and a complex mediator of the post-Cold War political economy. Comor assesses consumption as a core but contradictory nodal point in contemporary world (dis)order developments arguing that capitalist consumption--as a political, economic and sociological institution--facilitates efforts to rule through consent. However, as a result of its constitutive influence, consumption also mediates how vested interests (e.g., the American state and its opponents) conceptualize desirable, feasible, and imaginable strategies.
